Beaded Earth Day Necklace Craft Kit
This is one of the best necklace crafts I have ever seen. It is great for little ones who want to do a craft themselves. The string has plastic ends to make it easy to push through the beads. The beads are wooden so they weigh down the necklace in the middle (whereas foam beads sometimes don't keep the necklace hanging nicely). Overall it looks really cute when finished!

Fishing Game Prize
At the recent Heartland Baha'i School we wanted to give one prize for the kids, but I wanted to avoid something that would be misplaced or lost during a busy day. This was perfect! Boys and girls of all ages loved it, and it gave them a little something to do right after the fishing game. The "world" theme fits right in with Baha'i life, and for families that had to leave early, I gave a few for kids to make on the ride home. Bag of 12 comes with a little bag of extra beads just in case.

The project itself is a great idea, and the kids were very excited to make the necklaces.. however, the beads (majority of them) did not have the correct size holes for the string, or the wood was shredded by the holes.. I ended up having to carve each one out with a knife before the kids could easily place the beads on the string (assuming the knife didn't completely ruin the bead first)

I bought these for Earth Day to give out for awareness. On a whim, I whipped up these varying the bead patterns and also knotting the ends of the beads together so it formed a circle pendant. The kids LOVED them this way! I will get these again next year!

Great Project for Daisies
I wanted to have an easy craft for Earth day for my Daisy troop and this was perfect. The girls loved to make the necklace. It was a easy to string together since the laces have plastic tips.
